General description

Starlink Data Format (SDF) files are a container format, primarily for astronomical data, developed by the UK Starlink Project (1980--2005).

The main 'user' of .sdf files was the same project's higher-level NDF format.

Other information

The Starlink Project[1] ran from 1980 to 2005, and has been supported, since its funding ended, by the Joint Astronomy Centre, Hawai`i.

There is no standard SDF MIME type. Almost all SDF files used a .sdf file extension.

Software

The Starlink software suite reads, writes and manipulates SDF files.

Sample files

No collections known.
